Jim and Linda Moore
We are the Directors of the Salem House of Prayer, a 24-hour a day worship and prayer ministry, that seeks to provide a continual covering of night and day prayer over the city of Salem OR, and the surrounding area. Intimacy with Jesus, touching the Father through worship, and developing spiritual identity, are a few of the biblical themes we passionately seek to impart to the body of Christ. We are the happy parents of 4 wonderful children, and 10 perfect grandchildren.
What will I be when I grow up? I thought I would be making cookies and taking care of grandchildren when I was older (which is awesome). But, God had something else in mind for me - LIKE - intimacy with Him and a partnership that grows out of that relationship which involves loving my neighbor as myself. Sound familiar?? Yeah, that would be first commandment followed by the second commandment - my destiny. I love Israel. I love to pray. I love people. Take those, mix them together and you have: A Woman On A Mission
My Mission: Loving God, Loving people, and preparing to take worshipers and intercessors to Israel!
I have many desires for life but the one thing I desire the most, is to know Jesus, like the way I know my Mom or my best friend. I have so many questions about life and am searching for answers, like all of us, but I want what I do in my life to be about true relationship with Jesus and people. I want reality, and to walk in the abundant life that Jesus died for me to have.
Nels has faithfully served the Salem House of Prayer in many capacities over the years. His gifted worship has led thousands of hours in the prayer room and whether empty or full, night or day, he has always played for an audience of One. His humility sets an example for us all. His heart for Jesus, his love for people, and his ability to lead his S.H.O.P. family and partner with his lovely wife and beautiful children in the ways of worshiping the King of Kings is an inspiration to many. He is truly a gift from God to our team.
After a few years of leading worship sets at SHOP, the Lord has put it on my heart to be on staff full-time. Salem is my hometown, and I am so blessed that God put me here and is allowing me to be a part of what He is doing in and through this city. I have a passion to see the church awakened and filled with love for Jesus. I am also passionate about tearing down the strongholds of abortion and human injustice through intercessory prayer and worship. One of my favorite things about Jesus is that he is full of joy!
I and my family have been in the ministry since I was a small child. I have traveled in and out of mexico for 10 years, and have been up and down the east coast and parts of the west coast doing ministry work. I believe God has been training me up for such a time as this, to bring me to this House to help get things ready for an awakening of the God bread.
Zeal for the house of the Lord has consumed me. I long for the presence of Jesus and spend every spare moment in His house soaking in His radiance. I burn for Him.
After 2 years in Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, California, I have a desire to see the Kingdom of God reign in the hearts and bodies here in Salem. Being a missionary to America, I believe the Gazing Before the Lord message of IHOP and the Going message of Bethel shall come together: Sit and Gaze so we can Go and Disciple.
